Two-car crash in the Poconos leaves woman dead

A weather-related, two-car crash led to the death of one woman on the afternoon of Oct. 29 in Stroud Township, Pennsylvania. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the fatal accident, and an autopsy will be done at Lehigh Valley Hospital. There was no information available regarding charges, if any, filed in connection with the accident.

The accident reportedly took place on Route 611, when the 57-year-old woman's husband was driving their Chevrolet SUV during a storm that dumped as much as 12 inches of snow in the area. While they were driving north, the husband lost control of the vehicle, causing it to go into the southbound lanes. A Lexus with only one occupant broadsided the SUV, and the husband and wife were trapped for 20 minutes before emergency responders could extricate them.

The condition of the husband was not clear, although he was being treated for injuries at Pocono Medical Center. It was also not clear if the driver of the Lexus had sustained any injuries.

In this case, a wrongful death suit by the husband may be appropriate if the circumstances of the accident warrant it. On the other hand, the Lexus driver may also be able to file a civil claim for compensation for any personal injuries he or she may have sustained.

Likewise, Lehigh Valley residents injured in a car accident or who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident may benefit from the advice of an experienced attorney. When victims are injured or tragically killed in an accident through no fault of their own, the victims and their families deserve compensation.
